Standing amid giant sentinels (Redwoods) sky rocketing upward 400 feet or more, looking up and feeling small... as a small stream gurgles by... brings peace within.
With loamy soil underfoot and ferns of countless types finding light beneath their 1000 year old brethren, and the smell of the loamy soil with all it's microbes working tirelessly to create such beauty reminds one of how small we are indeed.
Looking skyward at these sentient beings brings a sense of awe to the heart... lifting our burden and allowing peace to filter into the soul.
Silence is pervasive here, allowing more than moisture to seep deep down into the essence of who we are.
Like a Buddha under the Bodhi Tree sitting, connecting, understanding, and allowing the fertile soil of stillness to expand within the heart.
Bringing about compassion and the ability to hold precious the essence of life within the Tao.
Thus stillness awakens our truth.
